Tips and Tricks — January

Welcome to this month’s edition of Tips and Tricks, brought to you by your favorite Client Computing student staff (the PERTs if that was not obvious)!

Many students are needing to change to a new password after coming back from break. To do this, press CTRL + ALT + DEL, and select the “Change a password…” option. The new password must be at least eight characters long, it must have at least an uppercase and lowercase letter, a number, and lastly, it cannot be the student’s first and last names.

When a password is changed, it is a global change. The new password is the password used to log onto Northwest computers (laptops and Computer Lab desktops), myNorthwest, and e-mail.

In other news, one of the PERTs has developed a new and innovative way for students to find out how to connect to the network from any device.

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact the local PERT.
